Alpha Industries Celebrates CNY With “Year of the Dog” Capsule

By Staff  |  02/16/2018

With the Chinese New Year here, Alpha Industries celebrates with the release of a limited "Year of the Dog B-9 Jacket".

Originally worn by pilots, the B-9 Parka is a quarter-length silhouette that is made with a thermal-sensitive fabric that changes color when exposed to body heat.

For CNY, the military heritage brand updates the classic with inspiration by this year’s Chinese Zodiac: the Year of the Dog. The jacket boasts a shearling collar, black faux fur lining and a Chinese New Year Good Fortune ribbon.

Limited to 34 -- because 3 & 4 are lucky numbers in the Chinese Zodiac this year -- the Alpha Industries "Year of the Dog B-9 Jacket" is available now online and at Kaufman’s Army & Navy Surplus store in NYC for $400 USD.
